Spirals Visual By Ken Springsteen 198x. Source: Bob Fabris Collection. This is unedited video art for the Bally Arcade / Astrocade and "AstroBASIC."  This is NOT a video overview. Several Ken Springsteen programs (Crypt-o-grams, Spirals Visual, Arcade Visual, and Ward's Display) were on a tape in the Bob Fabris collection labeled "Ken Springsteen Programs For The Arcadian." Crypt-o-grams was published, and the others should probably be considered unpublished submissions.
